  1. Good times hunting sleestaks this past weekend with a hardcore crew from dirty jerzey. Limited out day 1 on a slow pick. Day 2 was nuts with a 20mph wind with ...more gusts to 50. Had to share a shanty with Chris and listen to him sing songs from his favorite movie Home Alone 2. Day 3 caught the biggest fish of the trip.

  2. Plenty of smaller keeper eyes and perch for the fish fry, but this was my prize catch of the weekend, released (probably the only legal fish that didnt add to our ...more feast). Tip ups didnt do much this weekend. Had to jig our brains out to get bites!
